      Sweet Deal Coming For Hostess, Twinkies?

      Here's good news for Tulsans with a sweet tooth for Twinkies.

      Hostess - the former maker of the treat - could soon have a buyer for the iconic treat.

      Sources say two firms are the likely winners of this round of negotiations to buy .

      Hostess announced in November it was shutting down following a bakers' union strike.

      That led to a run on all Hostess products here and across the country.

      Hostess and Wonderbread have had a presence in Tulsa for decades. The plant could stay open at part of a deal with a Georgia company called Flowers Foods.

      The deal does not bring back 180 jobs lost in November when Hostess decided to shut down.
